There are two types of power, primary power and secondary power. Your monarchs power is the combination of both and a break down of your power can be seen under the tab ‘detail’ in your monarch view.
1. Primary power
Primary power is the base of your power. Thing such as constructions and technology all contribute to your base power. Primary power are things that aren’t effected by an attack, you will never having buildings or technology power damaged by an attack. Once a building or technology has been upgraded the power is there to say. Monarch power and talent power are both examples of primary power.
2) Secondary Power
Secondary power is subject to change very often as it can be affected when attacking players or monsters. Defending yourself or other players also change your secondary power.
Troop power, this is the total power of all your troops. Each troop has a power value assigned to it depending on the tier of troop, higher the tier, higher the power. When a troop is killed, injured or dismissed, you loose that troops power from your total value. Once a troop is healed, 100% of its power is restored back to your total power. Trap power is the same as troop power. Defending general power is also a secondary power as it can be killed on attack or captured.
The easiest way to get power is by troops, these give a lot of power and the majority of the time will make up most of your power. Subordinate generals also give power so the higher power the generals you have in your subs, the more power you’ll have, the subordinate generals also give debuffs to your marching army against the enemy. Only negative skills work, for example Saladin will give 20% extra dead troops to your enemy.
